The same genes respond to different approaches to prolong life

Scientists from MSU (Russia) and Harvard University (USA) found that different ways of life prolongation activate the same genes. Scientists studied the effect of 17 different approaches helping to increase life expectancy, such as a low-calorie diet, oxygen starvation, the introduction of certain drugs into the body, etc. Studies were performed on mouse DNA.

It turned out that no matter what method is used, there is activation of the same groups of genes. Scientists believe that research aimed at studying the molecular genetic mechanisms in the identified areas of DNA in response to exposure will help to understand how genetic markers of longevity affect life expectancy. This will give the opportunity to develop new ways to achieve longevity, which can be used in humans.
